Twenty "dine" napkins :)

Where have I been?

I have 8 million projects that I'd like to complete! It seems that whenever I get busy, my mind starts going nuts with ideas. Do you have that experience too? 
I have mentally designed about 15 different styles of napkins and I am thrilled about it, I tell ya!

Back to the original question, where have I been?

I have been scavenging this city for old beautiful linen, cutting, stitching and hand block inking an order of 20 of my dine napkins! I am so excited about this order for a lovely etsy customer. This project has really pushed me in many aspects, it has challenged me and I have learned a ton in the process. 
You see, this is the first time I have made these(entirely by hand!) that I have overcast the edges myself. It took about 6 trial and errors to really zero in on the look and feel that I wanted. I feel like this is an incredible milestone for my brand and business. I had no idea that this order would turn into this and I am so grateful for this order/customer/challenge. I am proud of my business, my very hard work, and the support of my patient and adoring husband. 

I wanted to post this as a blog to share this accomplishment with you as well as to inspire you to push through the project(s) that you are working on or wish to accomplish. Go forth and conquer! You can finish it!

These napkins have become so popular that upon completing this order I received another order for four more! I'm feeling a dine napkin giveaway in the very near future ;) stay tuned for that!

Here are photos!

Because sometimes your table wants to feel pretty too!

The amazing thing about handmade is how authentic each piece is!

Isn't linen so refreshing!

Keep checking in with my blog/shop/Facebook , I'm on a roll and there are many designs that I'll be releasing in the near future!

If you're interested in some dine napkins, I'd love to make some for you! Just leave a comment and make sure that you leave your email address. If you follow my blog or Be Sweetly Inspired on Facebook, I'll give you a coupon code. (*wink, wink*)
